One of our favorite spots!

We've lived in Dunedin for about 9 years now and Cafe Alfresco is our favorite places to dine at. I can truly say, we have never had a bad meal there! And the new updated drink menu is awesome as well.

I had a 8 oz burger The Classic" cooked medium, it came out perfect, the fries were served hot, we also had Sicilian white bean soup that was the best we have had, service was extremely nice. We had heard Dunedin had a quaint town, as we are from Massachusetts warming up in February in Florida, so we set out... More

We were there on a Sunday afternoon during the Dunedin Art Show. There was a wait but it was very short. The staff does an amazing job of moving things along without making you feel rushed. The service was excellent. On Sunday you can order off the regular menu or they have a special brunch menu. I ordered the grouper... More

After visiting SIP85 for drinks and appetizers we decided to visit downtown Dunedin for a late, light dinner and decided to try Cafe Alfresco. I've passed by this place numerous times in the past and it's always been busy. The Host was very pleasant and asked if we would like a enclosed patio table with a heater since it was... More

As the second best rated restaurant on TripAdvisor I was pretty confident that it would be good food, but (man!) I didn't know how good. I ordered a second helping.

We had been here a couple of years ago. We made a point of visiting again based on that experience. It was just as good this time.

Since we have the pleasure of living in Dunedin, we go downtown a lot. This is one of our favorite places to go. Food is always great! It can get very crowded though and it is not very big, but worth it.

They line up at Cafe Alfresco for Sunday Brunch so get your name on the list early. The restaurant is on the main strip of Dunedin which is a quaint old fishing town, (,probably), which has now become a tourist attraction close to Clearwater. Cafe Alfresco has an extensive brunch menu with drink specials that offer a kick to your... More

My husband and I always treat ourselves to lunch here when we make the 45-minute drive to the Rainbow's End fabric shop. We always find something good on the varied menu. I had the chicken salad recently and have to admit that I was disappointed. It was 99% chicken chunks with a tiny amount of, I think, celery. The dressing... More
